PlusN tips: How to set your keyboard & mouse

Hello guys!

I have created this content in case of some future improvement of E+.

This is a QWERTY Keyboard + Mouse layout sample to give an idea of how you can set all weapons and start your approach to plusN advanced skill config.

You will slowly be able to control 9 weapons if you hold on playing and practicing.

Here are two pics of a QWERTY keyboard and a random gaming mouse.

Which are these 9 weapons?
Gauntlet, Machinegun(MG), Shotgun(SG), Lasergun(LG), Plasmagun(PG), Rocket Launcher(RL), Grenade Launcher(GL), Railgun(RG), BFG.

More infos, translation or keyboard layouts can be added if needed.
If I will find time, I will explain how weapons work in PlusN.

Note: if you come from a fast railonly server, you could find that the railgun reload is slower, because the delay is set to 900ms. Just get used to it, railgun is still the main weapon in plusN.

Mouse buttons work faster than keyboard keys.. so mouse 2 is more efficient at bunny hopping for example, because the down time of the button is less => more speed

Beside that its just a preference. Good work there crazy Happy

This is how i understand it, don't boo at me pls xD

Thank you both Happy
Ps: I think the speed key difference(however minimal) also depends on the keyboard model.

I have tried mouse2 for jumping many years ago, but couldn't get used to it. For me spacebar is the jump bind for eternity. Mouse2 is for switching to grenades Tongue

Re: PlusN tips: How to set your keyboard & mouse

Very good presentation.
I used to have different keys for weapons but in the end its the same idea.
weapons: 1,2, q,e, r,t, caps, ctrl, alt, z, x, (i never used mwheel for weapons - my preference)
movement: w,a,s,d, c, space & right click (both for jump)
fire: left click

I was able to switch to any weapon i wanted while moving.
P.S. I'm left handed.

Thanks Happy

I was also thinking about a left-handed layout but only a left-handed can make it right.
Notebook layouts instead can have a left area orientation(awsd) and a right area orientation(arrow keys).

I can't move without the mouse key for jumping Big grin

Re: PlusN tips: How to set your keyboard & mouse

Mine is also similar but because of my left handedness somewhat different. I use numpad mostly for many of things.

mouse down switch RG
mouse up switch LG
mouse left click pummel.
Numpad enter for jump.
bfg numpad 9
grenade numpad 7
rocket numpad 1
numpad + SG
numpad 3 MG
numpad . PG

My middle mouse is also fire as well as my right mouse click so when I change in LG i can switch and fire simutatiously while also give me the option to go back to railgun with a simultaneous fire.

The arrow keys are for slow walk/crouch/spin around at 8000+ speed (because it looks funny)

Re: PlusN tips: How to set your keyboard & mouse

I've been use mouse 2 button for jump always.
Using Logitech G400s mouse with Logitech gaming software with 750dpi and pollingrate 1000.
Game sensitivity is 2.1950000
Mwheel up = knades
Mwheel down = gauntlet
Mouse 3 = railgun
Spacebar = bfg
q = shotgun
e = machinegun
f = rocket launcher
c = plasmagun
r = lightning

ctrl = crouch
left shift = walk

I have also Razer Nostromo keypad but i dont use it. I feel better with stantard keyboard.
